A wealthy man carried on a lurid affair with an Italian woman for several years.
One night, during one of their rendezvous, she confided in him that she was pregnant.
Not wanting to ruin his reputation or his marriage, he agreed to pay her a large sum of money if she would go to
Italy to secretly have the child.
If she stayed in Italy to raise the child, he promised to provide child support until the child turned 18.
She agreed to this arrangement but asked how he would know when the Baby was born.
To keep it discrete, he told her to simply mail him a postcard, and write "Spaghetti" on the back.
He would then arrange for his child support payments to begin.
One day, about 9 months later, he came home from work to find his Wife confused.
Honey, she said, "You received the strangest post card today. What could it possibly mean?"
"Give it to me to read, I'm sure I can explain it," he said.
The Wife, obeyed and then watched as her husband read the card.
His face grew dark, turned white, and then he fainted.
She reached down and picked up the postcard.
On it was written: Spaghetti, Spaghetti, and Spaghetti!!! Two with meatballs, one without.
